LitFest & Music at Davenham in June !
Now, with England almost certainly out of the World Cup, there's not much to watch on TV - at least until Wimbledon anyway - so here's news of events coming up at Davenham. These include three events in the Northwich Litfest (brilliantly organized by local author Susi Osborne) and a music event with Chris Bannister - who last year played music of John Denver to a sell-out audience - organized by Davenham member Denise Barry.

You will probably remember that, last year, singer Chris Bannister performed an evening of John Denver songs at Davenham to great acclaim. Chris returns again in 2014, this time performing his own songs. Tickets are available now by phone on 01606 556646 or on-line from the DANARTS website www.danarts.org.

A Northwich LitFest event. Lizzie Enfield (formerly worked for the BBC, journalist, novelist, sister of Harry Enfield and equally as entertaining!!), and Ian Williams. The Bad Doctor & The Bad Patient - Two very different writers dealing with matters of life and death and everything in between; anxiety and acceptance, regrets and wrong decisions, fear, friendship, love and loss…cycling, music and the difficulties of being a proper grown up! Ian Williams is a physician and comic artist, whose graphic novel, 'The Bad Doctor', explores the darker side of medicine, revealing the harsh realities of human interaction and behaviour during times of stress and fear. Lizzie Enfield is a journalist and writer whose prose novel, 'Living With It', examines the far-reaching consequences of the MMR controversy through the personal upheaval and emotional turmoil it causes two contemporary families. Together they will discuss the crossovers between medicine and fiction, the responsibilities of writers and doctors towards their patients and subject matters, the use of medical conditions for plot and ethical dilemmas as focus for moral debate.
